Cristiano Ronaldo, a Portuguese footballer and striker for Real Madrid, and Lionel Messi, an Argentinean forward for Barcelona are two of the greatest footballers (soccer players) of our time.
Ronaldo is the older of the two, has played in more games and scored more goals than Messi.

Too often he searches for a way to finish moves by himself without looking for teammates in a better position to shoot at goal.
His strength can be questioned at times when trying to finish close to the net and gets pushed off the ball too easily.
Lionel Messi has won the Ballon d'Or for a record 4 times (2010–12, 2015) and Ronaldo won the award in 20.
Messi was runner up in the years Ronaldo won the award, while Ronaldo was runner up in 20.
The way his free-kicks swerve with pace and power is a great asset to his team. On occasion, he goes to ground far too easily and sometimes tries a trick when a simple pass would do.
His ball skills are second to none, his runs from midfield are usually lethal and he is almost impossible to tackle when he gets his head down. Despite his scoring he sometimes messes up a goal scoring opportunity by doing fancy moves he is incapable of pulling off.
Ronaldo will take on any defender with searing pace, and mesmerising footwork to boot.
